An analysis of the MHD Couette flow on taking into account the Hall and the ion-slip effects has been carried out for fully developed flow. Exact solutions to the velocity components, magnetic field components, axial and transverse components of the skin-friction, temperature and the rate of heat transfer have been derived. The numerical values of the transverse induced pressure gradient, the skin friction and the rate of heat transfer are entered in tables and the others have been shown on graphs. It has been observed that the flow may become unstable when M is small and Ãe (Hall parameter) and Ãi (ion-slip parameter) are large or at large value of M.
